Discover the unique stone pavement design and techniques utilized in Japan for stone pathway construction utilized primarily in tea gardens or noble man's entries. The program begins with a guided tour of the Seattle Japanese Garden (1075 Lake Washington Blvd E, Seattle, WA 98112) to look at examples of Japanese stone paving and other elements. The tour will be led by Portland Japanese Garden Curator, Sadafumi Uchiyama. From there the class will head to Marenakos Rock Center, one of the premier stone yards in the country, for a lecture and illustration presentation by Uchiyama. The following day (optional), you'll work side by side with Uchiyama and Head Gardener Michael Kondo to construct a Nobedan path. Participants are asked to provide their own lunch.

Wow! This sounds fascinating...would that I were in the neighborhood, I'd love to tag along.
Meanwhile, shouldn't the headline read Issaquah, Washington instead of Portland?
Much aloha,
